More About the Author

My "thing" is that I keep up with the current nutrition research. I've been reading 100s of research studies for years, then packaging that information into news-you-can-use for magazines, books, national and local television and radio, presentations to the general public, and continuing education seminars for health professionals. I specialize in understandable and practical information on how to eat and supplement and why to prevent disease and premature aging, promote health, and attain and maintain a healthy weight. For the past two decades, my aim has been to be the source of nutrition information that people can really trust to be accurate, up-to-date, and sound. I passionately love the science of nutrition, as well as cooking and preparing healthy meals, and believe with all my heart that if people just nourished their bodies with high-quality fuel, they would be rewarded a hundred-fold with health, energy, vitality, longevity, clear thinking, a fit figure, and improved moods.

Format: Paperback
This cookbook is one of the best I've come by for people who have average to above average cooking experience and who are looking for very tasty, healthy meals. Everything I've made from this book has come out excellent and the ingredients are common to most cooks' kitchens, so you don't have to search extensively for exotic spices, etc. With some slight modifications, I have been able to improve a number of these recipes based on my individual tastes. I'm particularly fond of the soups and find that they are extremely quick and easy to make.

Enjoy and eat well!

Format: Paperback
This book relies too much on science at the expense of common sense. It makes extensive use of Splenda, egg substitutes, butter-oil replacement, and low-fat/non-fat cheese, sour cream, whipped cream, etc. If that appeals to you, then you will like this book. If you prefer natural food, like I do, then this book is not what you're looking for.

This cookbook has quickly become my favorite, default reference in the kitchen. Every recipe I've tried has been easy, delicious and healthy! I love the information included about why we crave certain foods, and healthy alternatives for all kinds of occasions - lunch, snacks, needing a carb fix, etc. I own several cookbooks but this is the one I keep going back to.

My 'feedback' (pun intended) from my sisters that they found out from this book why certain foods and recipies were healthy. They enjoy this cookbook.
